What is Reiki Healing Energy?
Reiki is ‘Universal Life Force Energy’ that comes through a Reiki practitioner attuned to the Reiki energy. The Reiki healing energy flows from the Universe, through the Reiki practitioner and to the person, situation or object they are sending Reiki to. Everything is energy, and Reiki energy just so happens to be a form of energy that is directed by Spirit to heal.
How does the Reiki energy work?
Essentially, the Reiki energy goes where Spirit directs it to go. This very smart and always beneficial energy heals at a cellular and atomic level. It literally changes things by breaking up stagnant energy, adding in positive energy if needed, and creating space for healing to take place.
We also go into further detail in the article “How Does Reiki Healing Energy Work?”
What is the difference between Reiki healing energy and other types of energywork?
Dr. Usui ‘discovered’ the Reiki energy and put a name to it in Japan in 1904. We put ‘discovered’ in parenthesis because we believe the energy has been around as long as we have. Probably longer! But we love Dr. Usui for creating a specific modality and allowing people to pass down the ability to send Reiki energy specifically.
Although other forms of energywork are spiritually-directed as well, Reiki healing energy contains a number of symbols that each have their own energy. These symbols can be used for specific purposes, such as to heal karma, to strengthen relationships or to quiet a person’s mind.
What can I use Reiki healing energy for?
This is where we redirect you to the article ‘How to Use Your Reiki Healing Training’. But let us just say that we use it all day, every day. Even the words you are reading now have been imbued with Reiki healing energy!
How can I use the Reiki healing energy?
People can transmit and send Reiki healing energy once they are attuned to it. An attunement is the process by which a Reiki master passes down the ability to send Reiki energy to a student. Once the Reiki student receives the attunement, he or she can then get to work using the Reiki healing energy.
There are different levels of Reiki. Though each Reiki master has the discretion how they want to organize their classes or attunements, they are generally broken down into Reiki I, Reiki II, and a Reiki Master Level attunement. You can get attuned online or in person.
Can practicing Reiki create harm?
No. The beautiful Reiki healing energy is always, we repeat always, will only work for the highest good of all concerned. Now, you may not feel that the Reiki is working for your highest good if you cry when receiving it or feel bad, but trust us, it is. Crying is a release, and the Reiki has allowed you to get that negative energy out of your body, to be replaced with an energy of your choice. So choose a positive one, eh?
What color is associated with Reiki?
Reiki is often associated with purple energy, which also just so happens to be the color of the Divine and Spirit. Makes sense. We like it, we like it.
